Pictures, philosophy, phriends and phun

Sorry - I'm on a "ph" kick - I'll try to narrow it down to one letter at the end. Meanwhile . . .

Daphne dances with light to the tune of Monet with a dazzling guest appearance from Sydney. See it here:

Linda, like Daphne, a former student and continuing friend from my "CyberEd" days, forwarded this Seuss-like poem that starts out like a political rant, then gets far more profound. I loved it and added it to "Peace Passion" here:

It begins -

The Whos down in Whoville liked people a lot, But the Grinch in the White House most certainly did not.

One of the things that cntinues to excite me about the Internet is how things such as this - and many others - get written and shared.

Harriers, Mourning Cloaks, and more greeted Don and I in a recent photo expedition to Ruecker Wildlife Refuge in Tiverton, RI. For more details and a link to an album, see:

Don found this wonderful piece in the Toronto Star that starts with a great quote:

"If they can get you asking the wrong questions, they don't have to worry about the answers."

Thomas Pynchon, Gravity's Rainbow"

Don't miss the Canadian perspective in: "Bush Gassed his own people."

Meanwhile, in the broader blogging world I really liked this entry from David Soliday in "Facilitating Paradox." David is studying to be a Unitarian minister:

Josh Marshall starts today with just an incredible - wonderfully ironic - paragraph from Reuters - read, stop, think. He also does some probing behind what isn't reported in the main stream about the Condi deal. The main stream media miss so much.

James relays a wonderful piece in "Aces full of links" on the "Top twelve Reasons Against Gay Marriage" here:

My favorite:

8. Gay marriage will encourage people to be gay, in the same way that hanging around tall people will make you tall.

But read the whole list - it was hard to single just one out.

It's really a great world out there if you ignore the three Ps - polls, pols and press ;-)

Oh - and yesterday it got better for me. We finally have high speed Internet in Westport. I opted for a DSL with Verizon deal and ended up with that rarest of modern gifts - more for less! See we were paying Earthlink about $21 a month for Internet access and since we were using the phone we need ed a second line - another $28 a month. So I had a slow connection for $49 a month which I just traded for a high-speed DSL link for the grad sum of $30 a month. See - ignore the 3 "Ps" and there really is some good in the world!
